The Yanchep Rail Extension extends the existing Joondalup Line 13.8 kilometres to provide stations at Yanchep, Alkimos and Eglinton.
Starting at Butler Station, the extension will help support growth in the area, and reduce road congestion by providing a quick and efficient direct public transport link to the south.
Land use planning is also underway to maximise the opportunities for residential and business development along the future rail corridor.
In the short-term, the Yanchep Extension Project will help develop activity centres by stimulating new employment opportunities in the Yanchep Strategic Metropolitan Centre and support higher density land use. In the long-term, the extension will help move the more than 150,000 future Yanchep-Two Rocks residents.
The Project Definition Plan will be finalised in the first half of 2018.
Construction is planned to start in 2019.
